and the dictator linked first in conflict then to war and rice to the beginning of the roosevelt administration discussions over the persecution of jews in germany. >> two was leading those discussions? >> probably the leading% was an informal adviser who roosevelt had known much earlier when he was assistant secretary of the navy and they reestablished the friendship when roosevelt ran for governor in 1928 against a jewish opponent and frankfurter was an important to initiate those discussions and what americans can do about it also the secretary of labor frances perkins who was a labor activist and a major advocate for refugees. >> secretary perkins and frankfurter worth a jewish? gimmicky was although he did not become justice until the thirties but frances perkins was not but oddly she was attacked by anti-semites basically anyone who supported jewish issues was jewish franklin roosevelt himself was accused of being jewish people talk about president rosenfeld and he had a wonderful response i am not jewish but i think people are wonderful and i would not mind if i was. >>host: was there a
social security as franklin roosevelt's secretary of labor and then, of course, sat back and applauded president roosevelt as he got all the public credit for creating social security. what roosevelt really deserves credit for, huge credit, is having the vision and courage to choose francis perkins as his secretary of labor. no president has made a better or more important cabinet choice since. and no cabinet member in history has had such a lasting and important effect on the way we live in this country. i promised last night that i would try to do the impossible tonight, and imagine what francis perkins would say about today's debate on social security. specifically the president's proposal to reduce the cost of living increase in social security benefits. now, i'm fairly certain what franklin roosevelt would say. that's the easy part. but let's listen to more of what roosevelt and francis perkins themselves had to say about social security to try to figure out what they would say about it now. here is fdr at the signing ceremony of the social security act with francis perkins standi
true, though,it? >> he could not see what the equation produced. >> he wrote a letter to roosevelt and said that uranium is susceptible the atomic power in so many words. th could be done by others. that was suggested in a letter, correct? and that led@rooselt to form a@committee. that committee would then assemble in the manhattan project. now as i read einstein, he's very careful to say i didn't do any of at. he didn't. he wasn't involved in the project directly but he planted the seeds in roosevelt to get with it and get on with atom power for military use because hers were gonna do it. >> he was afraid -- >> isn't that true? >> yes. >> he was afraid the germans might be able to develop a weon, but i don't think he knew exactly what kind of a@ >> one thing he did not understand and he says that. he did not understand the chain reaction. chain reaction was brought into being bythe four scientists who werewho? >> talking abt oppenheimer, salard. this was then transferred to los alamos. >> the original four were fermie, text ellah and they form roosevelt's committee. then they par
showing him in a three-piece suit, sitting on a rock by the side of the road. he picnicked with roosevelt at height dark on the banks of the right with his generals and in the north african desert with friends. he established his own picnicked rituals, and do theatrically sick and old joe's controversies that could only be recited as picked acts. much has been said about churchill alcohol, some of it true, most not, some exaggerated. i go into detail about his drinking habit. roosevelt had been told churchill was a chart, a charge one or two of his critics repeated. churchill did consume more alcohol than we are used today, but not a great deal of the standards of his contemporary and did not affect him or his work. >> and now, logan beirne examines george washington thoughts on politics and government during wartime. this is a little over an hour. >> good evening. i am the director of the yale law library and i'm here to welcome you to the booktalk series. i also want to thank the federalist society are cosponsoring tonight's talk. tonight's program features logan beirne, the author of a
167 roosevelt way. we have kept this property to use as our retirement home. i'm here to respectfully ask you to deny the permit of the vertical addition and the variance to the balconies to the east side. i'm also addressing the balconies as well the scope work will reduce our property value by reducing light into you're backyard and it has significant limitations for development and it's been oddly shaped. i appreciate every homeowner 's desire to improve their home and lifestyle and should be allowed to improve their properties. the proposed improvement will negatively affect my property. in my estimation they have failed to exploit other opportunities to expand the residential space of the property. she has ignored the concerns of neighbors and dismissed our suggestions that she has voluntarily altered with proposals to neighbors concerns are outrageous. while i'm not opposed to her improving her property for her in enjoyment, should not be to the detriment of her neighbors. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> good evening. robert walter. i live in the house that both greg and k
>> good afternoon planning commission. you have before you a dr for a project at 165, 167 roosevelt way located in the corona heights neighborhood. it includes a one story vertical addition and north elevation to the building to replace rear stairs and add rear balance -- balcony. a 1200 square foot of habitable area and 4 feet 6 inches in depth and five foot balcony. the hearing to this project was originally held in december 5th, 2012 while the notice was still pending. requested dr prior to the expiration date. the sponsor is requesting rear yard to the balcony. that hearing is now combined with this dr hearing. such property has a part abutting it. it's one of the adjacent properties to the east of the subject site. the proposed building would be out of the neighborhood and out to the adjacent property toe east and the proposed building is out of style with the neighborhood. the propose compartment is compatible with the near by and the buildings are separate by rear yards that provide 64 feet of space which is more than enough space typically to provide spaces in the environm
who shaped the presidents from this sara delano roosevelt to virginia kelley. profiles the women who nurtured the american presidents of the 20th century. it's about an hour. c-span: bonnie angelo, where did you get the idea to write about the first mothers? >> guest: well, you know, i'd covered the white house for a long time for time magazine, but i remember the exact day it came into my head, and that was in 1968. i was covering the california primary with robert kennedy. and i--i asked him--i said--the--the family was deployed all over the state campaigning for him, and i said, 'with all the tragedy that your family has suffered at the hands of politics, how do you account for the fact that they're out there again?ai a 'and he kind of looked at me under the eyebrows and said, 'have you met my mother?' and so i spent a couple of days with that formidable roseet my o kennedy and saw just howth resilient she was, how interested she was in--in--in all of the things connected with pol--how devoted she was to robert kennedy, how she said at the time, yes, she would--she ent she was, ho
griener. this is my home and since i live on roosevelt way i will inspire to quote from franklin roosevelt. be sincere and be combreetd. -- greeted. i want to thank you for your time and my neighbors for agreeing to meet with me during this past year and my 12-13 tenants who are with me in this support. i work in health care and owned and lived on our home for 13 years. it's a 2 unit building. we could not afford to buy another home. we need the space to accommodate our family. the project has taken a year to date and in that time one parent died in the hospital instead of hospice with me at home and we have another who is in assisted living which is very stressful and expensive. my goal is to provide you with helpful facts. can i have some technical help? thank you. so we are adding one bedroom with closet, we bathroom, one living room and home office area to the top of the home. having one bathroom for all of us is not sustain able and i'm doing my office work in the bedroom. as you can see the windows are elegant and we are keeping in line with the surrounding heights. we are a letter
history, it has been movement and the power of movements. franklin roosevelt was moved by later movements. lyndon johnson had the civil rights movement. i think we begin with that. this book comes out at a moment when the country sees the power and possibility of occupy, 99%, and how that has shifted. it is still evolving. it has shifted the center of political gravity of our dialogue. the issue has been off the radar for so long. >> roosevelt surfed and harnessed those movements. he used them to get legislation passed to initiate programs. obama is still getting on his wet suit. to read the essay she wrote in 2008, there was a sense of exhibits -- exuberance. you say that hope is not optimism that expects things to turn out well. it seems like he confused those two things. >> i will come back to what i write about in the book. the expectations were so great and high. go back to 2008. the back to the election and year when we are fortunate region were fortunate enough to be living with debates that were not cruel reality shows. every week, there were debates among the democratic candidate
roosevelt's new deal. fdr acted quickly. never before and never again would farmers see such a torrent of legislation passed for their benefit. for the first time, there was a national program to raise farm income by guaranteeing minimum prices for farm goods. president roosevelt could not have envisioned that over the years, the formulas determining who receives farm subsidies would evolve in such a manner that it's corporate agri-businesses who are receiving the farm subsidies, not the small, struggling family farmers that president roosevelt envisioned in the 1930s. at that point in time, we had a significant percentage of the population that was directly engaged in agriculture, so the subsidies re focused on sustaining a very large percentage of the population. over time, we have seen that population in agriculture dwindle down, but the notion that you need to protect that food supply has always been there. schoumacher: by the mid-1990s, with a booming economy and high agricultural prices, congress decided it was time to wean farmers from depression-era subsidies and phase these pr
to protect a disappearing wilderness. theodore roosevelt became the us' 26th president in 1901. he traveled to yellowstone and grand canyon and hoped to preserve them. teddy roosevelt's conservation legacy became one of america's most important. [ken salazar] it's important for the people of this country to connect to the landscapes of america. wilderness does that because it shows us the grandeur of our planet, and it's important to preserve that not only because it's important for economic engines, but it's also important for the way that it refuels the american spirit. [narrator] this heritage was defined by the creation of national parks. conservationist and writer wallace stegner called the national parks, "americas best idea". wallace stegner wrote the wilderness letter in 1960. [sandra day o'connor] wallace stegner at the end of his life was disillusioned with how the west had allowed development to overtake its natural beauties and its natural bounty in favor of development. [narrator] wallace stegner described a concept called "the geography of hope". he believed wilderness was nec
for separate roosevelt's, the first roosevelt of his first term was concerned with reelection, fighting the depression, getting the new deal in, did little or nothing for the jews. .. >> 937 passengers aboard the u.s. st. louis in june of 1939 were denied entry to cuba, yet it was roosevelt's initiatives that had allowed 5-6,000 jews to reach cuba before they had changed policies with respect to st. wo withed with american jewish relief organizations to find safe havens in western europe for all passengers. this was before the holocaust and before the war. and everyone thought settling them in britain, france, belgium and the netherlands was safe. so the whole story has been badly distorted. he also. >> top priority which was to prepare the nation for a possible war and immediately sherman tanks to the british to keep the -- there would have been no israel, no jewish state without that. then you have the fourth roosevelt,he naloosevelt who sets up in 1934, a war refugee. personally tries to use diplomacy to get a jewish state in palestine. not perfect, but not monolith imeither. and, yo

( sobbing ) oh, no, don't worry, if this runs out there's an antique sideboard in the drawing room that i think is a reproduction. oh, it's eric, isn't it? i don't why i'm being so silly. we weren't together long enough for anything to really happen. sometimes the most powerful feelings can come from the promise of what might happen. just the anticipation is enough to make all the little hairs on your neck stand on end. dr. crane. yes, daphne. we're losing the fire. no, we're not, it's burning with the heat of a thousand suns! but it's down to its last embers! well, then, i'll put some wood on it. you had to keep pumping gas, and now you flooded it. you cannot flood a fuel-injected engine. this is so maddening. we're so close to t
're thinking hey, wait a minute, franklin roosevelt proposed social security and he was definitely not a woman. but it wasn't really his idea. roosevelt's brilliant idea, and i do mean brilliant, it was also then very brave, was to give us our first woman in a president's cabinet. there were many jobs people could not imagine a woman doing in those days, and secretary of labor was definitely one of them. how could a woman hold her own with union bosses, not to mention other members of the cabinet. president roosevelt chose a woman named francis perkins as his secretary of labor, the highest ranking woman in american government and did it simply because he thought she was the best possible choice for the job, which she proved more thoroughly than perhaps any cabinet member in history. no member of the cabinet has ever changed life in america more than francis perkins did. 30 years after she was offered her cabinet post in a speech at the social security headquarters in washington she told the story of her appointment this way. >> before i was appointed, i made a conversation with roosevelt in w
done more. i couldn't find in the records. teddy roosevelt in 1912, which i believe is the year the organization was founded. an assassination attempt left teddy roosevelt with a bullet in the chest. nevertheless, he insisted on making a speech that lasted for an hour and a half before going to the hospital. he also displayed courage as leader of the rough risers during the spanish-american war in encouraged when he saw it, he told a friend the jewish fighters under his command in the rough riding had shown the most astonishing courage. as new york's police commissioner, after he found that almost all cops were irish, he encouraged jews and women to join thercefo years later, the german politician arrived in new york to get antisemitic lectures. because of the first amendment he couldn't stoph m the germanimed the ews never worked. what tr did was assign four jewish cops to protect the man around the clock which delighted the jewish community. the man himself got a negative ep inudin a baa of rot eneggs where he was shortly after killed in car crash. did you know the teddy bear
integrated baseball by putting jack roosevelt robinson on the field. sports in america would never be the same. a conversation with harrison ford, coming up right now. >> there is a saying that dr. king had that said there is always the right time to do the right thing. i just try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminate hunger, and we have a lot of work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: more than a decade before the civil rights activists took to the streets, branch rickey went up against a wall of segregation and brought in jackie roosevelt robinson to play in america's then all white pastime. it was a courageous move. all the while driving on the field. rekeyed took on the baseball this movient -- challenges -- let's take a look. >> i love baseball. given my whole life to it. i was a player at ohio university. they had a negro capture on the team -- c
on 15th were separated by the street, properties up roosevelt and buena vista and park hill or this building here are all uphill literally and i don't see them being affected by our addition in terms of light and access to open space. with respect to noise, i would like to say that the addition is setback and the loss of sound or noise is inversely proportional to the distance. adding the distance to our neighbors on east would further lessen the noise if any originate ing from this process. we have lived here for # 13 years and since that time has not had any complaints about noise. we are both working professionals and i assure you, we will not be spending time on the balconies like we are 22. she has met with the neighbors to discuss this and was met with opposition on each subject. even randy met with the neighbors. >> thank you, your time has expired. thank you. >>> good afternoon. i'm nadine's tenant. i wanted to say with the support that i'm here with her today is that we tried to accommodate the neighbors request but they are opposed to entire project. i attended th
, and i agree with her 100% about mr. roosevelt. in my own case i know that my mother and father, when they learned of mr. roosevelt's death, almost sat sugar, which greens, you know, commemorating the dead by spending seven days. he had an influence over the jewish people that to this day has never been corrected, frankly. the argument about mr. boswell, the many authors have written about him is that it's true he didn't do much to save the jews. but he did more than anybody else. >> right. >> and that's ridiculous because everybody else did zero. [applause] and mr. roosevelt did very, very little, aside from the st. louis, which was, incidentally the captain of that ship was german, not a jew but german. he spent many days trying, once these people were not allowed to land in cuba, he went to the coast, right off the coast of miami where people could still see the lights shine in miami. d tt his government refused to let the thing. and today, everybody knew what was going on in the european theater. there's no question about it. these people were turned around and sent to belgium, fi
known episode from the second world war when the roosevelt and administration was worried in the german democratic populations there is about 1.5 million would rise up and take over the country but this was the concern widely shared in the security establishment of the joint army and navy planning board about the possibility the itelligence agencies were concerned the began a program that was lost to history and tell i recovered it under which the fbi was dispatched to look for the saboteurs and that america and the problem is the people generally did not speak german or spanish or they didn't know about the country's so you get your expense account and offering good chief of police and that opened the system riddled with corruption where latin american dictators quickly realized this german who owns a farm this german who owns a farm take him away and then i can take his land and we brought 4,000 people of german origin and put them in a camp in texas but what i discovered is pretty soon mp commanders said who are you sending us? there spanish speakers, old men 80 jews who fled germany
roosevelt administration. roosevelt had worked for -- and nast knew him. so he called the roosevelt administration metaphorically speaking looking for some diplomatic signature that would help him pay his house elves and give him an honor and -- honorable retirement. he got an appointment in july of 1902 only to contract yellow fever and be dead by december. so it did not in the end work out the way he had hoped. when it comes to the nast's legacy something we like to talk about a lot he's famous for three things. primarily first for the popularization of the elephant and the donkey assembles at the democratic and republican party. he did not originate the use of the donkey. that predated him by decades because of his association with another word that i won't say but i'm sure you know. he didn't go link the elephant to the republican party and that connection he exploited quite frequently as part of the larger symbolic world that he filled with lions and lambs in dogs and people as animals and animals as people, whatever animals he used at the moment were likely to appear. he is al

country is known for its political ones. think bush, roosevelt, taft. my favorite, duck. back to politics, the bush dynasty continues through jeb bush who some say is an early 2016 presidential contender and his son george p. bush lou is running for texas land commissioner. in all the bushes had two presidents, one vice president, two governors, one senator and one u.s. congressman. also starting a new chapter is the kennedy dynasty. caroline kennedy is being considered as u.s. ambassador to japan. her grandfather was roosevelt's ambassador to great britain. the ken klan included one president, three senators and five representatives. how about landrieu or pryor? those are the names democrats hope will help them win mid-term re-elections in red states. we are really red states. obama lost senator mary landrieu's home state louisiana by 17 points in november. his loss in senator mark prior's arkansas was even worse. 24 points. the big question, are deep roots and multigenerational name recognition a comforting blessing or a curse in the anti-establishment push for fresh faces?
americans. this, from a democrat, the heir of franklin delano roosevelt who pulled us to our feet when the great depression had america on its knees. franklin delano roosevelt, this social security measure gives at least some protection to 30 million of our citizens who will reap direct benefits through unemployment compensation, through old-age pensions and through increased services for the protection of children and the prevention of ill health. but those were the days when our political system rallied to the defense of everyday americans. now a petty, narcissistic, pridefully ignorant politics has come to dominate and paralyze our government, while millions of people keep falling through the gaping hole that has turned us into the united states of inequality. warren buffett, the savviest capitalist of them all, may have written this era's epitaph, "if there was a class war, my class won." let's talk now with sherman alexie. he comes from a long line of people who have lived the consequences of inequality, native americans, the first americans. they were the target of genocide, ethn
that there was a train car underneath grand central terminal that franklin roosevelt used to get up to the waldorf-astoria in a special elevator that no one could see that he was handicapped. is that the train car? >> that is a matter of some conjecture. there is a drinker, what looks like a freight car, looks like a baggage car that could well have held at the ours car. it is a size in which a car with it. the doors are wide enough. the car was that grand central. no question. i look at secret service logs from the 1940s to confirm this. roosevelt took a train to the waldorf and wind up in a private elevator into the hotel. so it's not entirely clear whether that baggage car actually was used for his vehicle. but one of the things in researching the book i discovered that just amazed me is whenever the president of the united states is in town now and staying at the waldorf, there is a fully manned train running under the waldorf astoria on that side waiting to whisk in out of town in case he requires an emergency means of egress in case there's some biological attack on the street or an incredib
